Our football match prediction:
Sunderland did well to grab one point from Monday’s football game against Liverpool, but they need to keep on producing fine display on regular basis if they are to secure the Premier League survival. The Black Cats sit in the relegation zone in the standings ahead of the FA Cup game against Burnley and, no doubt, they are fully focused on the national championship. We predict that coach David Moyes is going to use the Burnley game to rest his first-team regulars as the team had a busy schedule in December. The Clarets produced a good performance in a 2-1 loss to Manchester City at Etihad Stadium, but it more than obvious that the team produce much better showings in front of home fans. When the two teams faced each other in the Premier League on 31 December Burnley rolled over Sunderland 4-1 and we believe that there is a certain value in betting on the visitors.
Highlighted Player (Fabio Borini):
Fabio Borini is an Italian football player who was born on 29 March, 1991. Borini plays as a striker, but he is capable of playing as a winger as well. The Italian footballer began his professional career at Chelsea, but he made no more than four appearances for the capital club. On 9 July 2012 Fabio Borini completed a transfer to Liverpool, but he had a pretty disappointing start to his career at Anfield, scoring just two goals in 25 appearances for the club. The Italian striker spent the 2013/2014 season on loan at Sunderland and he scored seven goals in 32 appearances for the Stadium of Light outfit. As a result, he signed a permanent deal with the Black Cats in August 2015. Speaking of his international career, Borini made his Italy debut on 26 February, 2012 in a friendly with USA. He made Italy Euro 2012 squad as well, but he did not come off the bench at the tournament finals.
Highlighted Team (Burnley):
Burnley were one of the founding members of the Football League back in 1888. The Clarets did remarkably well to win the FA Cup trophy back in 1914 and the club owners have been trying to bring glory days back to Turf Moor ever since. Burnley defeated Liverpool in the 1913/1914 FA Cup final and, no doubt, this is regarded as the greatest achievement in the club’s history. The Clarets finished the 2015/2016 Championship campaign in top position in the standings and, as a result, they will participate in the English Premier League in the 2016/2017 season. Burnley play their home games at Turf Moor and the capacity of the stadium is 21,401. The Clarets have won two Community Shield trophies so far, in 1960 and 1973, but they have yet to clinch the Premier League title. Claret is the dominant colour of the team’s home shirts.
